  • My oldest knows how to cook now, so if she's up to it, she cooks for the family.

  • Been there done that. My kids love cereal so they think it's awesome to get it for supper.

  • Yes, but my kids love any kind of breakfast for dinner. Cereal and fruit, or pancakes and turkey sausage with fruit. I figure as long as they have some fruit and milk with it, it's fine. They usually eat sandwiches for breakfast, so their day would just be reversed.

  • Been there! one night of cereal or whatever else won't hurt anyone ; )

  • Heck no, you're not the only one. My daughter would be tickled to death if I let her have cereal for dinner. That only happens when she gets sick, but it's tempting to cave in sometimes.

  • Close enough - around here it's just grazing - I throw a bunch of fruit and veggies on a plate with some cheese and crackers, kind of do it yourself lunchables without the salt lick ham.

  • We have fend for yourself nights. There are always leftovers or frozen things or microwave masterpieces, of cereal of course. lol

  • Its good to see that moms on here dont all think they are super heroes lol. Even though we feel like it sometimes, its good to know we need to put our feet up at least one night. Hey cereal, pancakes, waffles, PB & J. all good. As long as they are stuffed, and that isnt the only thing they ate all day.
